'I Can't Wait Until You Die': Outrage at American Couple's Cruel Taunts at Terminally Ill Seven-Year-Old Girl
Daily Mail: An American husband and wife have been branded the most heartless couple in the U.S. after taunting the family of a seven-year-old girl who is dying from an incurable disease.
Little Kathleen is in the final stages of Huntington's disease -- the same wasting illness that her mother, Laura, died from last year at the age of 24.
In another incredibly cruel taunt, Mrs. Petkov also put a picture of the girl's dead mother in the arms of the Grim Reaper online.
After Laura Edwards died last year, the Petkovs also allegedly drove their truck -- which bears the message 'Death Machine' and has a coffin attached to it -- down the street and honked the horn.
Neighbors accused the couple of laughing and poking fun at Laura Edwards and her daughter because of their disease, a progressive neurological disorder that causes involuntary writhing movements.
A Facebook page was set up identifying Jennifer Petkov as the 'Devil of Detroit Street' and an online petition describing the couple as 'disgusting human beings' was aiming to collect 100,000 names.
The story has also gone viral -- causing people from around the world, including Britain and Germany, to send messages of support to Kathleen's family.
The dying girl's father Robert Edwards appealed to the Petkov family: 'Just leave us alone; that's all we want. Don't make any more comments about our daughter.'
Mr. Edwards, 26, said it has been tough enough caring for his family.
'You have to understand how angry we are,' he told the Detroit News.
